Visitors look at photographs of the “House of Representatives (DPR) in Color” exhibition on Wednesday (29/8/2018) in the House’s lobby in the Senayan legislative complex in Jakarta. The exhibition was held to mark the House’s 73rd anniversary and depicted its lawmakers in action at meetings and other events.

The House of Representatives (DPR) commemorated its 73rd anniversary on Aug. 29. It is a ripe old age. However, it has been becoming more difficult for the House to pass its targeted legislation.

Such was the public image obtained in a Kompas poll conducted in late August and published on Monday (3/9/2018) to commemorate the House’s anniversary. This is despite the fact that legislating, or making, deliberating and enacting laws, is the House’s primary function in addition to monitoring and budgeting. A majority of the poll’s respondents felt that many lawmakers of the 2014-2019 term were not focused in their duties.
